How to Find Cheap Air Travel to/from Virginia

Because the U.S. capital covers such a small area of land, none of the three airports which serve Washington D.C. are actually in D.C. – and two of them are in Virginia. And besides those two, there are still a few other airports in Virginia with international designations.

Washington Dulles International Airport (airport code IAD) is 26 miles from Washington D.C. in Dulles, Virginia, and is one of the busiest airports in the country. It is a major United Airlines hub and a focus city for JetBlue. A complete list of the airlines serving Dulles is here.

Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (airport code DCA) sits closest to downtown Washington D.C., but is actually in Arlington County, Virginia. Flying in and out of DCA affords passengers with excellent views of the National Mall. The airlines with the busiest schedules at Reagan National are US Airways and American Airlines, and you can find a complete list of all the carriers at National here.

Behind the two Washington D.C.-area airports, the next busiest in Virginia is Norfolk International Airport (airport code ORF), which is three miles from downtown Norfolk. The busiest schedules at Norfolk are operated by Southwest Airlines, US Airways and Delta Air Lines, and has no international flights (despite the name). A list of all the airlines serving Norfolk is on this page.

Richmond International Airport (airport code RIC) is right behind Norfolk on the busy scale, and is roughly seven miles from the city of Richmond. There is one regularly scheduled flight between Richmond and Toronto, which gives the airport its international designation. You will find the carriers serving Richmond on this page.
